Funny, Interesting and Shocking Things About People Who Watch Fox News

Fair and Balanced Data

What kinds of people watch Fox News? No complete survey has ever been done until now. Utilizing the most current and advanced methods in modern research, scientists from the Institute of Fair and Balanced Data have culled a plethora of amazing data about those who watch Fox News.

According to a report in "Atlantic Monthly", over half of Fox News viewers are 65 or older. Of those who watch Fox News, 83 percent identify themselves as either conservative or moderate.

While it's widely known that people who watch Fox News are 100% more likely to be right-leaning in their politics than those who don't (they vote for the GOP presidential candidate by an average of 9 percentage points), the following facts about Fox News viewers are not as widely known.

Mio Cid, what you have described also can be used to profile muslims thoughout the world. Of course, by your philosophy, we aren't supposed to profile anyone. Just remember that when they're shoving 40 ounces of TNT up your rear with an 8 second fuse.

Left leaning media outlet viewers MUST be just as wacked. Why did you not do research to present the other side?

All of the above poll results were completed by NPR and mainstream media outlets. True Conservatives understand the real meaning behind the numbers. But thanks for the entertainment nevertheless. Kool aid may be fun to drink, but Tea tastes so much better.

there are about 20 million people in this country who make up the Faux News audience,they are also the same who listen to limbaugh and hannity,they show up at the tea party rallies,and have taken the republican party and the whole country hostage to their extremist, racist, xenophobic,homophobic ideology which is for the most part based on ignorance and misinformation.
